The activation of small molecules using frustrated Lewis pairs

Abstract:

This thesis describes the activation of small molecules using frustrated Lewis pairs, in particular investigating their use to reduce CO₂ to methanol, thus producing a new route towards a renewable fuel.

Chapter One summarises the requirement for a renewable fuel source, the alternative methods currently available and previous research conducted into converting CO₂ to methanol using FLPs and other reducing agents.

Chapter Two describes the synthesis of a new family of electron-...
